Alleged Kokomo Key Bank Robber Arrested in Mississippi

ISP SmallGulfport, MS – This morning, a four week long investigation into the armed robbery of a Key Bank, in Kokomo, IN, resulted in the arrest of Mykelti Robinson, 21, Gulfport, MS. Robinson surrendered to federal law enforcement authorities in Gulfport. He was incarcerated on a federal charge of bank robbery.

On March 29, 2016, officers from the Indiana State Police responded to an active hold up alarm at the Key Bank located at 1151 East Hoffer Street in Kokomo, IN.
